of this sovereign state and refuse to submit to illegal use of power by the central government and hereby denounce and forbid this illegal and unwarranted action by the central government. >> that was alabama governor george wallace 50 years ago. here's mississippi governor phil brian yesterday. >> we will not enforce any unconstitutional measure, edict, that's being issued by the president of the united states. we need to send a clear message to the federal government that we're not going to continue what we enforce what we believe to be unconstitutional laws. >> different issue, same words. states' rights. back in the 1950s and '60s, local police often stood by and refused to enforce new civil rights laws. now, some conservative sheriffs say they'll refuse to enforce new gun control laws from washington because they may consider them unconstitutional. today's conservatives aren't opposing the right of our children to go to school. but they are standing in the way of our children going to school safely. that's why president obama is proposing these strong, common sense solutions to gun violence.
on assault weapons. he said, and i'm quoting, it's our attempt to push back on the federal government's ever-increasing encroachment. not only on our personal liberties, but on our state sovereignty. >> reverend sharpton, i'm glad to be here. >> now, let me ask you, do you really think your state bill will trump federal law? >> well, that's part of the point. what we're trying to illustrate here is that the federal government has, systematically, over the years, been on full assault of the second amendment. when you assault the second amend. it's not just the second amendment, you assault the entire bill of rights. that's the broader point that we're trying to draw here is that for years, the bill of rights have been under attack from the federal government for no other reason than power and control. >> now, let me ask you a question. where in the second amendment does it give you the right to do the things that the president announced the other day were executive orders. the president said -- i was there -- that he supports the second amendment. he was not talking about guns. he's talking a
was worn some as the 40th president of the united states ushering in an era of limited government and the rise of the modern conservative movement. yesterday barack obama, the 44th president of the united states, was sworn in for his second term. the moment that will define progressive politics m years to come and one that symbolizes a renewed faith and the power of the american government. needless to say, it was a day several decades in the making. >> for the first time in history government, the people said, was not our master. it is our servant. >> government is not the problem, and government is not the solution. we, the american people, we are the solution. >> the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sapp our nation. they strengthen us. they do not make us a taker of nags. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> as he made a forceful case for economic equality and the social safety net president obama championed the american belief in equality of race, gender, and sexual orientation,
kathy rogers told "political" i think it is possible we would shut down the government to make sure that president obama understands that we're serious. well, i guess that would do it. we always talk about whether or not we're going to kick the can down the road. i think the mood is that we have come to the end of the road. what road? and republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee said this to msnbc's chris jansing. let me ask you if you're willing to shut the government down? >> we're looking at all the options, there is the option of government shutdown, the option of raising the debt ceiling in short-term increments. i think there is a way to avoid default if it requires shutting down portions of the government. let's look at that. >> and in his press conference, president obama quoted speaker john boehner from 2011. >> that would be a financial disaster, not only for our country but for the worldwide economy. i don't think it is a question that is even on the table. >> and the last question of his press conference, the president was asked if he may be more successful
on to some of their hostages. the algerian government say they had to act in the way they did yesterday because the islamic militants were threatening to move the hostages. certainly the government didn't consult any of the foreign governments around the world who are concerned about their citizens. the only foreign involvement that we know of is that a u.s. surveillance drone was over the plant. marah. >> all right. thank you. >>> for the first time in over two decades, the u.s. has recognized the government of somalia. secretary of state hillary clinton calls the official recognition a milestone in somalia's fight against islamic extremists. somalia's president was in washington for the announcement. the u.s. had not recognized somalia since 1991 when war lords overthrew the government and a civil war followed. >>> well, first lady michelle obama was in fine form celebrating her 49th birthday. the white house says the president and mrs. obama dined with friends last night at an italian restaurant in washington's upscale georgetown neighborhood. earlier in the day, the first lady debut
wants results and they want results in their jobs, in their lives. they want the government just to work better. and i think that is the big disconnect right now with washington because, you know, republicans are wondering how much leverage they have to force the president to deal with spending, for instance. do they sort of wait him out and hope for a positive result in 2014 and use whatever leverage over the del ceiling or whatever else but the public finds it so distasteful. the president too on issues like entitlement, i think it's really striking, will he seek to rise above how difficult it is that he doesn't feel he's got a negotiating partner to try to get something done on entitlements? if he wants robust economic growth he'll have to. we will have a debate over guns and the debt between ted cruz, fresh face, tea party face from texas. >> old school/new school. >> and chuck schumer from new york and our political roundtable as well where we'll look at the big challenges. >> in urban america is one place on guns and rural america and the south another. >> see you sunday. >> thanks
the way it began. randy weaver, his three children, and the man the government reluctantly accepted as its negotiator walked out of a mountaintop cabin late this afternoon hand in hand. >> he didn't come out. we went in. and we hugged each other. and we kissed the girls and hugged them. and it's a very emotional thing. >> it was 11 days ago when the siege in northern i'd began. weaver, his wife, three kids, and a friend were found hiding in a remote cabin not far from the canadian border. weaver was wanted on charges of selling sawed-off shotguns. there was a shootout, and a federal marshal was killed. the next day weaver's wife was killed. a son killed. and a friend wounded. northern idaho is a hotbed for anti-government sentiment. and as the siege dragged on a vigil of angry supporters watched the authorities' every move. >> so bo gritz, presidential candidate that year, ended up playing this key role in ending this horrible standoff. but the standoff, it lasted for 11 days, and it did become a cause celebre for a very angry portion of the very far right anti-government fringe in this co
is all about. people who maintain an almost total skepticism about what government can accomplish for the good of this country. he talked about all the good things government does, whether it's education or it's a safety net or it's regulation when it has to be done in terms of big business. he launched all those good reasons and then he said, of course, there are people who retain a reasonable skepticism about the role of government in this country. that debate is going to continue. i thought that was an amazing effort. he's not going to win any support from the tea party. he might win though, the congressman may know better, he might be able to make some of the people who represent the suburbs who are not so far right realize this guy is not their enemy. he is somewhat to their left but he's probably as reasonable as anybody to their right in terms of politics these days. >> chris -- >> i think the battle today is between people that want government to function, want the debate to continue, and people that want to take their ball and go home and end government, shut it down, use
, like we will be this year there's something different. governing is already under way. the president has started some things that he intends to finish in his second term. sort of a sense of continuity, well informed expectation about what kind of president this is going to be and where he is likely to go. when president obama was inaugurated. first time, there was none of that certainty and expectation, right? the country and all of us were caught up in the historical enormity of the fact that the united states of america was about to swear in our first african-american president. and that eight years of republican administration under bush and cheney was coming to an end. that inauguration in 2009 was such a dramatic break from the past, toward a whole new future that i don't think anybody expects that we will have an inauguration quite as consequential as the last one. maybe ever again. but we now know, as part of the historical record, that while the whole country was marveling at the enormity of the transition we were making on inauguration night 2009 something else was going on
claim the sandy hook shootings were engineered by the government to gain sympathy for gun laws. in this atmosphere, how much can the obama administration really get done on gun safety? also, as president obama prepares for a second term, which way is the democratic party headed? will it be a pragmatic middle of the road alternative to the gop or will they try to seize the moment and move sharply to the left? you can't be president of the united states for four more years without a couple of episodes like this. >> we cannot sustain -- oops. was that my -- that's all right. all of you know who i am. >> we'll have more of the lighter moments of the first term in the side show. this is "hardball," the place for politics. y,when it can be f? push-ups or sprints? what's wrong with fetch? or chase? let's do this larry! ooh, i got it, i got it!

have a background check, do they have to wait while the government checks out who they are, whether there's a court-ordered mental situation or emotional problem or a criminal record or whatever. what stops them from getting that gun mailed to them ten days or whatever later? >> well, right now they get turned away at the point of sale and are not prosecuted. that's a problem the president ought to deal with. that's the problem the president and we have been talking about for a long time. nothing stops that person from going online, pressing a mouse three times and getting a gun from an unlicensed private seller. >> you can go on ebay and get a gun. >> not on ebay. they do a good job not selling guns. armslist and craigslist. >> if somebody says bushmaster 100 bucks used. >> or best offer. here's my phone number and e-mail address. throw me your best offer and let's move somewhere. guns, cash, that's it. >> are either of you educated on what the assault rifle is? >> the president is going to follow the lead of people on the hill. diane feinstein. >> didn't the bushmaster not get def
by the government to gain sympathy for gun laws. in this atmosphere, how much can the obama administration really get done on gun safety? >>> also, as president obama prepares for a second term, which way is the democratic party headed? a pragmatic middle of the road alternative to the gop or will it move sharply to the left? >>> you can't be president of the united states for four more years without a couple episodes like this. >> we cannot sustain -- whoops. was that my -- that's all right. all of you know who i am. >> we'll have more of the lighter moments of the first term in the "sideshow." this is "hardball," the place for politics. ng. ring. progresso. your soups are so awesomely delicious my husband and i can't stop eating 'em! what's...that... on your head? can curlers! tomato basil, potato with bacon... we've got a lot of empty cans.

cut spending. if that means shut down the government, shut down the government. >> i think in williamsburg we saw one possibility, which was paul ryan and others within the republican party saying to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 5 0% chance it passes. >> good because hunters need 30 bullets
are are the sequestration and the deep cuts to domestic and military spending and the end of the funding of the government that could result in a govern shutdown and the sent ceiling fight and the debt ceiling fight has potentially the worst consequences for the economy. so the republicans thought instead of taking the debt ceiling fight first and potentially doing real harm, let's move it to the end of the first of three standoffs. >> and sequestration, of course, also a major issue. do republicans think they can win on -- on major cuts to domestic and military spending? >> probably not. i don't think they have a lot of betting power here at all. the debt ceiling was the biggest bargaining chip that they had and they just moved it to basically a totally different battle which would be over the budget and spending in a few months. >> you're segeing an emerging consensus that you can't control the entire government if you only control one part of congress. seeing the hits they took in 2011 over the debt ceiling fight over the fiscal cliff battle and trying to reorganize their strategy here. >> was there so
the lift the federal government government's statutory barri barring -- borrowing limit for three months, with a requirement that both chambers of the congress pass a budget in that time to clear the way for negotiations on long-term deficit reduction, to add muscle to the efforts to bring democrats to the table, they would include a provision in the debt ceiling legislation saying that lawmakers will not be paid if they do not pass a budget blueprint. was it right to step back from challenging the president over raising the debt ceiling? >> well, i think the house proposal is a step in the right direction. no doubt the senate hasn't done it's job. it's been nearly four years since it's passed a budget. but it doesn't go nearly far enough. we have a crisis. i just got back last week from afghanistan. and i had multiple servicemen and women clasp me on the arm and say, please do something about the debt and deficit. we're bankrupting the country. that's what the american people are looking for. and to date, politicians have both parties have been unwilling to take even a tiny step in the
in the world were brought to their collective knees, they went crawling to the government in search of salvation. the government obliged, allowing them to socialize on the backs of mainstream americans. the housing and job crisis they created fostered a poverty unseen in generations not just an inner-city ghettos, but also in suburbs and rural areas, crossing racial, age, and gender lines. nearly one-third of the american middle-class, mostly families with children have fallen into poverty. the book is yours for $75. the dvd of our full conversation on and off the air and the full event the night before his yours for contribution of $100. put that together and you can have them for $150. call 866-3594334. it is your call that makes the difference. you may democracy now! happen every day on linktv. on monday, we will be in the nation's capital bringing you a five-our inauguration special from 8:00 eastern standard time in the morning to 1:00 p.m. go to democracynow.org for details. please call right now, 866-359- 4334. we're going to go to the conversation and i encourage you to call
the government. >> trouble for tao. the one-time heisman hopeful, is he the victim of a cruel hoax or part of the plot? >> just got a message from somebody i think in hawaii saying they had heard his girlfriend didn't exist. >> every single thing about this was real to me at the time. there was no suspicion that it wasn't -- no belief that it might not be, and so the pain was real, the grief was real, the affection was real. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. our new nbc news-wall street journal poll is real, and it shows that white house officials move just how difficult the fight is going to be to pass the president's new gun proposals. the president's biggest public opponent on this issue, the marshall rifle association carries a favorable rating nationally. the entertainment industry, not so much. not mentioned in the president's remarks on wednesday, and it is seen negatively by nearly four in ten americans. joining me now for our daily fix, chris alissa, msnbc contributor, and managing editor of post politics.com, and our own nbc news senior political editor, mark m
of the area's conservative tide. >> in this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem. >> but the most recent inaugural address was that given by barack obama. >> this is the price and the promise of citizen ship. this is the source of our confidence, the knowledge that god calls on us to shape and uncertain destiny. this is the meaning of our liberty and our creed, why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent mall, and why a man whose father who less than 60 years ago might not have been served in a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath. >> wow. at its best, inaugural justice for a presidency, what a lead sentence does for a book. it captures the duration of what's to come. a great presidency often begins with a great statement. in the day that make that statement is within moments of taking the oath itself. jon meacham is the author of "thomas jefferson: the art of power" way up on the new york times best sellers list and he joins me now. i'm here
by the government to provoke enough anger to warrant rounding up your guns. websites, blogs, youtube videos have attacked the veracity of officials and official accounts of tragedy. they allege many of the people were actually actors. that the parents didn't show enough emotion and must be in the conspiracy. some claim if the shooting actually happened, there must have been more than one shooter and the government was involved somehow. one 30-minute truther video on youtube has been viewed over 10 million times, and it's not just the loons on the internet. james tracy is a tenured professor at florida atlantic university. take a look at what he wrote on his blog. while it sounds like an outrageous claim, one is left to inquire whether the sandy hook shooting ever took place, at least in the way law enforcement authorities and the nation's news media have described. david corn, i remember growing up and going to the movies and paying because i wanted to learn whether big foot really existed. >> yes. >> and somehow now in the 21st century, you know, those sort of nutty ideas where nobody got hurt
. reinvigorating a mature nation means giving government to give people the tools to compete but then opening up a wide field so they do so ruak cowsly creatively. it means spending more here but de regulating more there. it means facing the fact we do have to choose between current benefits to seniors and investments in our future, and that to pretend we don't face that choice as obama did is effectively to sacrifice the future to the past. >> jonathan, first, what do you think of this speech and secondly, what do you think of david's column? >> i thought the president's speech was terrific, a progressive vision for the country. the guy won twice and ran on all the things he talked about yesterday, inclusion, balanced approach to the nation's problems. when it comes to david brooks' column, as mika was reading, i was thinking, how is that different from what the president actually said? i mean, he's talking about how, you know, what he wants to do is what he's been saying all along, a balanced approach. we have to take care of our seniors and take care of the middle class. we have to take care
group of people who think this is not an appropriate function of government. i'm not one of those. that's not what this was about today. i want this money to go to the folks in the northeast. the question today was whether or not we thought it was important enough to pay for it now or whether or not we were going to pay for it later and make our children and grandchildren pay for it. that was the discussion. i think it's a fair discussion to have. >> all right. well -- but, is it not fair to also point up that in terms of some of your colleagues, there's some blatant hypocrisy? 67 republicans that voted against the $9 billion package. but 37 of them supported emergency aid following disasters in their own states. and you're one of them. the fact is, congressman, you actually received help from a disaster relief program. in 2011 you testified on a committee of small businesses and here's what you said. you said i've actually participated in disaster assistance relief. i showed up six months after i started my business one morning to find my office furniture floating in the front yard. we
. this is about democracy. the people of new york have decided through a representative government that they don't like the bushmaster. they don't want the bushmaster out there. and you know what? they also want some serious background checks. that's not an attack on the second amendment. that's not an attack on your personal freedoms. that is a change in the law. and that's how we run the country. but rand paul, this tea party senator from kentucky, who says that basically, he'll do anything. need a little bit more clarification there, senator. are you trying to start a civil war? because i think that is the question at this point. the rhetoric has to stop. now rupert murdoch tweeted something out today about maybe we'll finally get something done on gun laws. we'll have that a little later on in the show. tell your talk show hosts over there, your hosts of your big programs over there to cool it and be responsible, because the charlie daniels of the world and the newt -- the ted nugents of the world, they all pay attention to that channel, and they all thrive on fear. where is the responsibili
, prepare for a bond-style showdown as the government barrels towards its borrowing limit. that said, there might exist a solution that would allow congress to do what it does best, which is to say nothing at all, and still save the economy. this do nothing approach was floated by senate minority leader mitch mcconnell in 2011, and president obama gave it a hat tip yesterday. >> they want to put the responsibility on me to raise the debt ceiling, i'm happy to take it. mitch mcconnell, the republican leader in the senate, had a proposal like that last year, and i'm happy to accept it. >> how does it work? step one. president asks congress to raise the debt ceiling when it's within $100 billion. step two, the congress rejects that request and sends a joint resolution of disapproval back to the white house. step three, obama vetoes the resolution of disapproval. step four, congress does nothing. as long as the house and senate wait 15 days before addressing the white house veto, then the president gets his original wish and the debt ceiling automatically goes up. in other words, a redo
